Thought we'd finished with old M31 for this season, but obviously not, and an excellent image to show for it.

Nice work Steve!!

WOW Steve.... what are you trying to do, give Rob Gendler a run for his money ? One or two dust lanes in there :D. Stunning... a real POW contender and still looks amazing at such high resolution.

Steve,

That's a real cracker. I don't think I've ever seen so many stars in the background of M31 before.

It's now gracing my desktop.

Cheers, Martin

Wonderful image. Well done!

First time I have seen such a 3D effect. There is a sort of depth of field in your image.
